Congrats to you Szecare!
To all mummies, we can do it. dont't give up on breastfeeding yet k. Give yourself a target. Eg, at least 3 months bf, then push to 6 months etc.. I have been through the devastating stage for my no1 too. So now I'm taking a more relax approach.
By the way, I think baby boy consume more than baby gal n get hungry faster. My no 1 I have to latch almost every hr day and night, for no 2, I latch once every 2-3 hours. Sometimes feel breast engorged, but after baby latch still not soften, wonder if baby got suckle correctly or not.
Oh i c ok... thanks kimyen
Sorry gers been away my son got jaundice and abit running nose just 5 days old and like this.. I cried on my way HM from pediatrician what a lousy mum I felt. Can't Bf.. Bleeding nipples manage to express only a little. Today when for Thomson Medical Center lactation consultation cost me 65 bucks I learn how to latch on once again. I hope I can succeed. But my son really empty my breast finally. I feel so good and the anti body goes to him. Came HM express 100ml both side.. The happiest can't be describe I feel so good!! Tml will be a new day.. I shall try latch on again.. So dont give up gers! I am trying just as hard day 6 of my newborn.. We already fed formula like nobody buisness. Taking my son back tml morning and will try again, Hubby bought me the pillow to support me as well. mother in law also dont support me but we really need to try.. Btw my son took pacifier.. mother in law buy and buy till one suit him which he taking now.

dont know y keep getting hungry at night... Looking for food...
Thanks kimyen!! Really need support :"( so touch.. Piggyhui, boys normally ask for more and some is not looking for milk, the look for comfort on the nipples. But if like me,mother in law given bottle and pacifiers end up baby not sucking well also Bo pian already. Cup feeding dont feel easy for me. But latch on I hope to try. Try to rest more you get better milk as you go on. That's how I look at it. That's the best I can do formula or bf, most Impt dont stress yourself. I cried for the first 1-2 days when baby is HM.
Hospital told us they were feeding baby with Nan pro 1. After the milk powder left abit (enuff for 3 feeding) I asked my hubby to get Enfa (per Cl's recommendation) and also got 1 tin of Nan Pro 1.
Opened Enfa for my baby gal to try for one day plus observe her shit to make sure it is not sticky and it is per normal (2x poo/yellow stools) then let baby continue Enfa. As for the Nan Pro 1 - we brought to NTUC to change (within 15 days).
Tried latch on again today but baby dont seems enough after latch 30 mins both side he wants more and became unsettled. I gave him my express milk and he seems better. But mouth sign still open. End up breast latch on again this time he mange to drink another 10-20 min and release the nipple himself. Do you all have this prob? Does it mean each time I latch on I got to wait till he release himself?
Mine taking enfalac since glen e uses that and she has no negative reaction...
I would still need to complement breast milk with formula now since she is drinking 50ml every 1 hr... doesn't want to take 90 or 120 ml one shot.... sigh... So I hardly have time to sleep, let alone pump .... She's very different from my #1...
Jovin,my girl has jaundice as well. She has to stay for 2 days in nursery after I got discharged, felt shitty then...When we brought her back she still had mild jaundice. We brought her out for morning walks since sunlight supposed to help... Vitamin D I think ..
Think happy thoughts... you will b able to cuddle your boy tomr
n Congratz szecare!
Jess , how are you coping? Just read ure issue with ure maid/helper.... How? Settled?
I have a Medela Mini ELect Plus ( DUal pump ) and city pack ( Cooler Bag ) to let go.
Used it only twice n no fluid pass through the parts.
this is bought locally in Feb this year and I still have the receipt and warranty.
PM me if interested =)
Any mummies have had their baby girl full month done and wants to let go their baby full month decorations @ Clearing* price. please pm me
hello all!! ahh i hardly have time to come online!
engel.. my helper BURNT my entire big pot of pig trotter vinegar which we were expecting guests in 2 hours time! so angry with her i had to deduct money from her because she wasnt apologetic at all and was all smiley -_- wtf or not you tell me..
apart from that, my baby is growing pretty well, jaundice nearly cleared. milk coming through. but shes having some sort of growth spurt ><~ how are you??
jovin.. try to let your baby latch on at least once a day else he doesnt take the boobs then boobs dont know how much milk to produce. and have to train him to latch on.. my first week was painful, blisters and cracks. but we bit thru it, she latches on well now and milk coming through. but i learnt that you try not to feed only when baby is crying, because he will be so eager to drink and will be rough.

How do i have alot of milk supply and how do i know if baby is enough when i latch on??
really dont know what
Mummies who is facing problem with breastfeeding..lets not give up, we know what is the best for our baby, let us be patience and continue to try..we will see the good result. Just Do It!!
It's good to be positive. Just keep trying and your baby will benefit.
Somehow I feel that whenever I latch on, I have this mensus cramp and I bleed alot the past 2 days. dont know is it due to my confinement diet (I was made to eat 2 half boil egg every morning) or breastfeeding.
With regard to knowing if your baby has enough milk, monitor the bowel movement. As long as baby poos at least twice a day, they sld be taking enough. My gal sonetimes poos when I latch her on.. It's like one way in and one way out, dont know she really got enough or not, haha.
I just had my first breast pumping today using my electric pump, manage to yield 100ml fr both side. So happy! I need to have another spare bottle of at least 100 ml expressed milk by Tom so that I can go watch my concert in peace. Wish me luck!
Szecare, I totally understand. When I saw your post I was like "when did I post this!" similar situation. baby first 2 nights is like that. Can you believe I gave in to formula and pacificer. They believe baby eat and sleep is the best. Day time I also separated from my son.. Like those olden imperial time, after the prince is born they took him away ha ha ha. Anyway I when to get pillow, and listen to advice latch on at least once and pump the balance. Hope my milk not patang, so far still ok. Drink milk and massage it well, I am also like you scare low supply but as long as you do your best, dont get stress, if not no milk also. 加油! mother in law ha ha at most try explaining to her must to latch on as often. Explain once not enough explain again and again. Now I training my 7 days old son to go without pacifier.
Hi gers, are all your NB sleeping with you at night? dont kno why my son dont really like staying in my rm. Been in mother in law room for the past 4 days.. Day I go over see him night he still sleeps there. Is this ok? I thought give me another week or 2 to continue rest before I try to learn taking care will the separation be ok?
But he doze off very fast in the "YAO LAN" which is in the living room or sleep in Mother in law's bed.
To us i feel that its alright to let baby to sleep with Mother in Law.
Rest well! =]
Piggyhui so fast Yao LAN? you kno when I give pacifier in the public I felt so guilty. Like am doing a no no thing. Yar.. My baby also dont like the playpen so sleeping with mother in law, he still have a very strong tendency to look for my nipples. The mouth keeps opening looking for nipples and you dont give him he wun stop. Give pacifier also spilt out when he really gt fustrated. Now I really confuse.. Latch on once a day or not... Difficult to make him separate from nipples too.
Dear mummies and daddies.
This is my first post as I have been a silent reader for the past 5 months. I just want to share my joy with all on the birth of my daughter, my second kid on 24Aug11 at Thomson Medical Center. My wife is originally due on 12Sep11 but we opted 37weeks and 2days for her to come out to the world via c-sect at the advice of the gynae due to low-lying placenta. Fortunately everything went through smoothly without any complications.
